wrestler size

Fhite always talks about vanilla midgets and tbh i think youre all wrong

What is the perfect height for a wrestler? where they still look intimidating/larger than life but where it doesnt harm their potential as a worker/in ring ability and can put on great matches?

        >billed height

        And Cena is billed as 6'0 but irl he's 5'10-11. Shawn is most likely 6'0 or below that

        There's a gay running NXT, no one is safe from.
        Doesn't matter if he's 3 feet or 6'1.

    A perfect height for a wrestler is hard to answer. Wrestling styles can completely change depending on if a guy is like 5'11 or 6'6. Also body composition is a much bigger deal imo. if you're 5'10 or 6 foot flat but fricking jacked imo that's much better being a little taller but you have the body of fricking Adam Cole. Guys like Benoit not for nothing weren't very tall but he was built like a brick shithouse. Short and in shape you can get away with but short and out of shape like Adam Cole is the fricking worst. If you're big and fat they can at least try and sell you as intimidating purely on the size of you.

    Anyhow, if I had to list a particular height range I would say 6 foot-6'5 is the range assuming the guy looks in shape and not like a Adam Cole or muffin-fed body like CM Punk

      I agree with a lot of this, but my range is closer to 5'9 to 6'3. Strength is more important than size/look.

      The problem with guys like Cole+Bucks is they have neither strength nor size. If you train almost exclusively 1-5 reps of high 1RM, you will put on much more strength than size, but it's heavily taxing on your CNS, joints and ligaments/tendons - so it's hard to be a full-time wrestler and add strength (maintaining isn't as hard). It's much easier on the body to do some 10-rep sets on machines/cables, leg press for a few sets and call it good. Guys like Omega, Swerve, Jay White, Hangman, you can tell they go hard af in the gym in all areas - it shows in the ring the way they can hoist and throw guys around. We've seen the videos of guys like Cena going HAM in the squat rack. Does anyone honestly believe the Bucks are wrapping their knees, throwing on a belt and low-barring 455 ass to grass? It's not happening.

      I discussed this a while back with Gunther and why he appears so much less intimidating than some other guys his size/height - it's because he's training strength not size (hypertrophy). It's too much of a workload to do strength + size + conditioning + wrestle all at the same time, unless you're loaded up on hormones. Stranger names have been popped (Literally Dee Strange, in this case) but Gunther doesn't seem the type, which explains his look.

        No yeah I can agree with the vast majority of this too. Strength most assuredly can create an aura of intimidation and presence. To your point, like Gunther.

        On top of the wrestling specific/in ring workouts Omega has done a ton of MMA style functional resistance and mobility training+bodybuilding over the years based on the clips of his training that are out there. The dude is doing lunges in the woods with logs on his back, indian clubs, and rolling jiu jitsu. He really does try to cover all of his bases. Some could say he could be taller but I think he's got a great look, great build, and all the training he does allows him to be strong in the ring. Iirc Cody has said that Omega is one of p4p strongest wrestlers he's ever been in the ring with.

        so if 5 reps is bad for size, what number is best?

        • 4 weeks ago

          10-12 even 8-12 is a pretty standard range for hypertrophy/muscle size focus. When you go heavier and lower in reps than that you're sliding into strength training territory. It all depends on what you're trying to optimize for.

    The correct size is in between Kenny and Okada and you need to be an athlete

    I wonder if they told Kenny to do the super wide leg stance so they'd all look the same height.

      They told him to take a wide stance and stand back behind everyone so the camera can see Adam

    There is none. Variety is what makes pro wrestling interesting. You need your muscle guys, fat guys, tall guys, slim agile guys, short stocky amateur wrestler types, lean MMA schizos, average joes.

    I think the ideal is a bit over 6 feet tall. Much bigger than that and it starts to restrict which moves you can do or take because some things are just impossible or too dangerous for a huge guy to do, much smaller and you start to look unintimidating
    But guys in the 6'4"-6'10" range still fill a very important niche

    If you're 5'4" you better be as good as mysterio. If you're 6'4" and up should be the standard.
    The Elite's problem isn't their height, it's that they can't talk and are completely clueless on how to put a match together.

      Omega was a better promo in Japan. Idk why his promos took a dip when he went to AEW. I feel like he comes off as...idk less confident as he used to? I genuinely used to think Omega was one of the guys that could work the microphone in New Japan but AEW he just off as unconfident and a little TOO fricking nerdy on the mic. Thankfully his in ring work has still been good during his AEW run but the change in his promo skills has been noticeable and I don't have an explanation for it other than maybe he just doesn't care as much in the US? The promos that he was cutting leading up to the Ospreay match at WK came off MUCH better like how he used to. Then he comes back to the States and thinks quoting Steve Urkel is going to not make him look like a legitimate geek to the fans.

    6'2 is the perfect wrestler height, taller than the average person but not a lumbering giant, at that height you can be either jacked or slim and athletic or even a fat dude and none of those builds look out of place on someone that height
